Subject: One of the best available lectures on existentiallism
In brief, Professor Kaufmann examines the existential tradition with clarity and deep insight. Certainly a great starting point for anyone with a curiosity and I would argue that there is enough insight to give anyone much to think about, regardless of how much exposure they have had to contemporary philosophy.
